Francine Lauzon is our studio seamstress.  You may contact her for any alterations you
need for costumes:

Francine urges you to call her as soon as possible as her availability
in April will be very slim.

 

2. TROPHY SHOP FOR ALL DANCEWEAR REQUIREMENTS

If you
require any tights or shoes, we ask that you go to the Trophy Shop: 
21 Father Costello Drive, Schumacher.  705-264-3444. Since First Choice Dancewear is now closed; this is the only dancewear
store available to us.

 

3.  RECITAL DVD’S

You may still purchase your recital DVD’s for this upcoming dance
recital.  Please see Mardi in the office
for more details or contact her at: 
office@themkda.com

 

4.  RECITAL VOLUNTEERS

We are already looking for recital volunteers.  We cannot put on a show of this size without
the help of the parents.  It is easy to
submit your name; simply go to:  
http://www.themkda.com and go to the “RECITAL INFO” page and click on “VOLUNTEERS”.  Here is the direct link:  http://www.themkda.com/recital-info/volunteer/

 

5.  CORRECT EMAIL ADDRESS

If you have changed your email address, please inform Mardi
ASAP.  In March, we will be sending the
link for ticket sales and we want to make sure everyone receives this
link. 

 

6.  NO HAIR OR MAKEUP AT RECITAL!!

We are sorry to inform you that we will not have volunteers
helping out with hair and makeup at recital this year.  Our hair & makeup artists were treated
very poorly last year by many of our dancers and, as a consequence, we are
removing this free service to all dancers.
Parents will need to ensure their child’s hair & makeup is done at
home or by a hair dresser.  MKDA was
proud to offer this service to their dancers, however the mistreatment and
bullying these volunteers received last year was unacceptable on all levels.

 

7.  KIDSPORTS

We
wish to inform you that as of Feb 1st 2018, KIDSPORT
will no longer be affiliated with Kidsport
Canada.
They are now called “Sports
for Kids Timmins
”.   This will ensure all contributions remain
locally and benefit deserving children from low income families in Timmins. The
organization will continue to operate in the same manner.

 

8. YEAR-AT-A-GLANCE

 

We
have made some revisions to this document and are attaching it with this email.
Please mark the changes for March Break.
